WCAG 1.0 Checkpoints
We believe that checkpoint 10.4 of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 has now been outdated as most user agents today handle empty edit boxes and text areas correctly. An associated label has been applied to each edit box and text area control so that it can be identified by the user agents.
- Until user agents handle empty controls correctly, include default, place-holding characters in edit boxes and text areas. [Priority 3] For example, in HTML, do this for TEXTAREA and INPUT.
